I clearly heard up to 6 inches of snow predicted for today. We’re at 8 and counting. It sure is
The dog and I went on a little walk this morning at Great Brook Farm State Park.
Yesterday called for a short hike on the Woodchuck trail and Garrison loop in Great Brook Farm State Park. Even with the light rain, it was a beautiful and easy hike. We parked near the canoe launch and walked across the road to the Woodchuck trailhead to find some historical spots for my daughter’s school project located along the trail. After passing the site of an old dam, our first historic stop was the remains of some kind of Colonial stone garrison. Fairly close by was an Indian grinding stone, that appears to have been intentionally destroyed. Looking at the stone you can see that holes were drilled down its length and at a depth almost reaching its bottom, splitting it in half and to its base. Finally we ended up at the site of the old grist mill. Not a bad 60 minutes.

~ My in-laws were visiting from Colorado this past weekend and a trip to Concord to see Emerson’s Old Manse and the surrounding national park was in order. The highlight of the trip? A stroll through and around the garden, planted by Henry David Thoreau for Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne who were renting the house at the time.

~ I’ve decided to enter four photographs in a local art show. I had no idea it would be so difficult to choose which images to commit to and now that they are done I’m second guessing myself. While sharing my photos online is one thing, financially committing to have them printed and dry mounted and then presenting them to the town is another. One thing I do know, if I do this again I need to learn how to dry mount and mat myself. UPDATE 6/29/13 – The photo of Boston came in second place for adult amateurs. I know it is a small town art show, but for some reason it meant a lot.
